Mojo

New York-based MOJO is a bright, not-to-be-missed addition to Winston’s line-up. Singer Mo Jami’s voice has been likened to Seal and George Michael. One of Mo’s Seal covers has over 750,000 plays on YouTube (search “Seal Don’t Cry Mo The Musician”). Mo’s rhythmic partner is drummer Alan Johnson. MOJO is born of the idea that two great musicians, with minimal technology and superior skill, can redefine what is possible from a live band. Listeners will hear hits from Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Smokey Robinson, David Bowie, Madonna and more — all with 4-part vocal harmony and infectious rhythm.

Swirl

SWIRL is Jimmy Vasilopolous on acoustic guitar and Alan Johnson on hand drums and various percussion. SWIRL was born during an impromptu rehearsal in the duo’s home studio in 2007.  The choice of traditional instruments – a classical guitar and an assortment of African and Egyptian hand drums, shakers and percussive ‘things’ – was the only pre-determined factor, and the music that flowed from the duo was completely organic and rooted in a decade of past gigs together.The duo performs original music with total chemistry. This will be a night to remember!
